We present Deetoo, an algorithm to perform completely general queries, for instance high-dimensional proximity queries or regular expression matching, on a P2P network. Deetoo is an efficient unstructured query system on top of existing structured P2P ring topologies. Deetoo provides a reusable search tool to work alongside a DHT, thus, it provides new(More)
OBJECTIVE The etiology of intraneural ganglion cysts has been controversial. In recent years, substantial evidence has been presented to support the articular (synovial) theory for their pathogenesis. The authors sought to 1) perform a systematic review of the world's literature on intraneural cysts, and 2) reinterpret available published MR images in(More)
This paper presents a parallel processing framework for structured Peer-To-Peer (P2P) networks. A parallel processing task is expressed using Map and Reduce primitives inspired by functional programming models. The Map and Reduce tasks are distributed to a subset of nodes within a P2P network for execution by using a self-organizing multicast tree. The(More)
Mitogen- and stress-activated kinase 1 (MSK1) is a nuclear serine/threonine protein kinase that acts downstream of both extracellular signal-regulated kinases and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase in response to stress or mitogenic extracellular stimuli. Increasing evidence has shown that MSK1 is closely associated with malignant transformation and(More)
—Structured P2P overlays provide a framework for building distributed applications that are self-configuring, scal-able, and resilient to node failures. Such systems have been successfully adopted in large-scale Internet services such as content delivery networks and file sharing; however, widespread adoption in small/medium scales has been limited due in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the factors which affect the motor evoked potential (MEP) responsiveness and parameters and to find the correlation between the function of the upper extremities and the combined study of MEP with a diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) in patients with stroke. METHODS A retrospective study design was used by analyzing medical(More)
BACKGROUND Myofascial pain (MP) is a common disorder that can involve any skeletal muscle in the human body. There are no published reports of the referred pain patterns of the third and fourth dorsal interosseous muscles. OBJECTIVE To investigate the referred pain patterns of the third and fourth dorsal interosseous muscles. STUDY DESIGN Prospective(More)
We screened the existence of bacteriophages in 67 Bacillus thuringiensis type strains by phage DNA extraction and PCR using phage terminase small subunit (TerS)-specific primers to the supernatants and the precipitated pellets of Bt cultures, and by transmission electron microscopy. The various bacteriophages were observed from the supernatants of 22 type(More)
We have identified the small molecule STK899704 as a structurally novel tubulin inhibitor. STK899704 suppressed the proliferation of cancer cell lines from various origins with IC50 values ranging from 0.2 to 1.0 μM. STK899704 prevented the polymerization of purified tubulin in vitro and also depolymerized microtubule in cultured cells leading to mitotic(More)
